Avnet upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James

Raymond James analyst Brian Alexander upgraded Avnet two notches to Strong Buy from Market Perform and established a $52 price target on shares. The analyst said Avnet's recent decision to divest its TS business to Tech Data and acquire Premier Farnell should allow the company to focus entirely on the more attractive EM business, improve operating margins, ROIC and book value, and use enhanced liquidity to drive shareholder value.

Tech Data upgraded on acquisition at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded Tech Data (TECD) to Buy from Hold. Analyst Matthew Sheerin upgraded the stock based on what he sees as "significant accretion opportunities" stemming from the company's acquisition of Avnet's (AVT) Technology Solutions business. He estimates that the deal could be $3-$4 accretive to Tech Data's EPS in the first year, and says that it could produce $11-$12 in earnings after all estimated synergies are realized. Target to $96 from $75.

Avnet downgraded on divestment at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel downgraded Avnet (AVT) to Hold from Buy. Analyst Matthew Sheerin says that the sale of the company's Technology Solutions unit to Tech Data (TECD) will lower its EPs by 75c, even after factoring in Avnet's pending acquisition of U.K.-based component distributor Premier-Farnell. The analyst says that the integration of the latter unit will "require some heavy lifting" by Avnet.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with analyst Joseph Amaturo saying he believes North American volume and pricing trends for trucks will deteriorate and is concerned that the passenger car market will remain challenged given stiff competition from Japanese and European OEMs that can heavily discount due to weak currencies. 2. General Mills (GIS) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Consumer Edge. 3. Ascena Retail (ASNA) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital and to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer. 4. Avnet (AVT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel and to Sell from Hold at Cross Research. 5. HD Supply (HDS) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying it will take several quarters for the company to address its supply chain errors, and she expects the stock "to stay range bound over the medium term." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
